developing software to semi-pro gambler
I've been kicking ass in online Texas Hold 'em. Are there other software developers out there that are owning the poker tables?
One of the top NYC poker players was doing it to pay the rent when the dotcom bust happened. Until Giuliani started "cleaning up" the NYC poker circuit.
It's illegal to play Texas Hold 'em in NYC? That place is more conservative than I thought. I'm sure the good players can always play at the casinos in Jersey, though.
I love playing at PartyPoker.com. Texas Hold 'Em rocks! (I even think there's a 'meetup' for hold 'em players, too)
PokerRoom.com is good for me. Although I am not too good at it.

The recent popularity of Poker has resulted in thousands of *terrible* players playing online and onland. Make hay while the sun shines cause these guys won't be around forever.
Oh, and Robert Varkoni who won the World Series of Poker two years ago is an unemployed "systems analyst".
Glad I'm not the only one. I am doing well playing both Texas and Omaha Hold'em on pokerstars.com.
I recommend partypoker.com. Lots of players and there always seems to be an open table. Also, I forgot to mention in my first post that in addition to be an excellent online poker player I'm banging Shana Hiatt.
I'm not sure that attributing the higher number of "good" hands to the higher number of hands dealt overall is really statistically valid...afterall, shouldn't there be a proportionate increase in "bad" hands too then?
"I'm not sure that attributing the higher number of "good" hands to the higher number of hands dealt ..."
Not so fast, kemosabe...
I've already decided that if I get rich of my current venture, I'm going to play poker for a living. :-D
